I'm Not Wiccan, but...

I am not a Wiccan, but I have celebrated Sabbats like Mabon and Samhain. Is this okay? I really want to celebrate Imbolc coming up on February second because it is also in February when I started learning and practicing Magick so it would be very special to me.

You don't have to be Wiccan to celebrate the holidays on the wheel of the year. To my understanding many pagans celebrate these holidays, not just wiccans. Even witches who don't affilate themselves with a religion sometimes celebrate these holidays just because they offer an experience to take part in. :) So if you feel that it would be really special for you then go for it. :)

I hope you enjoy your Imbolc Seeked and happy magical aneversary. :)

Most assuredly it is fine if you choose to celebrate the Sabbats. Many Pagans choose to do so. The Wheel of the Year is not something that is reserved for Wiccans only.

RainCaller; you have the wrong idea about witchcraft! Witches were celebrating the Sabbats long before Wicca was ever heard of.These beliefs go back many, many centuries.
Many refer to the Easter bunny. especially in the USA. But originally it was a hare; not a rabbit! It is also the reason for Easter eggs, because it was once thought that hares laid eggs.
Every May children all over Europe, and elsewhere, dance around a Maypole without the least idea that it is a phallic symbol.
And all religions have some magic in the ceremonies, and even witches, like me, have a spiritual side to their nature.
Witchcraft itself is not a religion, but witches have always celebrated the Sabbats; they are the natural order of the Seasons.

Hares don't lay eggs? When did that happen? Why didn't anybody tell me? Why am I always the last one to know?

I doubt it should matter

There are Atheists who celebrate Christmas and I even have a Jewish friend who celebrates Christmas along with his own holidays

There are no rules on this so you can do whatever you really please
